mens momentum melbourne boots and slip-on shoes in black and grey on the schuh blog

Think you need to solely eat tins of beans (the value kind) for 6 months to afford luxury shoes in your life? Think again, my friend, Momentum to the rescue.

We know the feeling. When you’re flicking through a fashion magazine, visiting a fancy shop or taking a browse on a website that has a homepage made up entirely of an image of an uninterested model and some links – and then you check the price. £960 for a pair of leather sneakers? Behave. And whilst we can hear our mother’s voice in our mind telling us that people who pay for these have: “More money than sense” – we can’t help but feel a little sad that looking good has to cost so much. But then, does it really need to? Whilst a £10 pair of shoes probably aren’t going to give you the high-end look you’re after (or last past a season) a non-crazy amount on top of that certainly can. Enter: Momentum.

The British brand was born out of a desire to change the mood within the sport-influenced fashion shoe industry, using luxury materials and inspiration drawn from global street style to create effortlessly cool silhouettes. And, if we may say so, they’re killing it:
